Such a beautiful, sad place. Men who left homes, wives, families hoping to return, now here forever. Sad, and I pray for them. God bless.

Extremely interesting blog for me. I have recently discovered my grandfather's war records on Ancestry which show that he served, and survived, in Italy from January 1918 with the 240th and 390th Siege Batteries, Royal Garrison Artillery. At the moment I believe that this was in the Asiago area, as there is a letter which shows he was involved in defending against the Austrian attack on 15th June. Does anyone know of evidence of where the batteries were placed or of any other accounts of RGA service in Italy? I already have Hugh Dalton's book.
